Brad Pitt casually dating one year after the separation from Angelina Jolie is a clear sign the Hollywood star gotall his life aspects back on track. Sources say he goes out on dates, but that someone special is still to show-up.

Brad Pitt may never get old in our hearts, but years add-up in real life. Yesterday, December 18, the Hollywood star turned 54. He looks like he is doing much better compared to this time last year, when the was in full mourning for the separation from his family, a divorce and a custody battle.

A source told People recently that the actor has benefited from the separation, in certain ways. “This split was good for Brad because he sized himself up and realized there had to be changes.” The source also added that the relationship between him and his estranged wife is relatively fine, in the sense that they work together on visitation for Brad and the kids.

As for his romantic life, the same source reveals: “He has been going out but there is nothing serious in the dating area at all, nothing to speak of at this point”.

The news of Brad Pitt casually dating is not at all unexpected, seeing that he is still considered one of the most attractive celebrities in Hollywood and his fans, who cheered his sobering efforts earlier this year, couldn’t be more thrilled that their favorite star seems to be getting his life back on track.

Pitt opened-up about his substance abuse in a very emotional interview for GQ, back in May “[Drinking] has just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again”, he was saying at the time.

Angelina Jolie has filed divorce papers in mid-September of last year, days after an incident involving Pitt and their eldest son Maddox, on a private plane trip. The Child Protective Services opened an investigation, which they closed over a month later, without finding that Brad was abusive. The FBI conducted their own investigation on the matter, but came to the same conclusion.

However, the divorce went ahead and things got messy at one point, with Jolie asking for sole custody of the couple’s six children.

Since the beginning of this year, things appear to have gotten smoother between the exes.

The divorce has yet to be pronounced.
